Third place Schroeder ' s four wins highlight mixed year SENIOR SUE SCHROEDER provided many of the highlights for the women ' s cross country team as it raced to a third-place tie (with In- diana and Illinois) in the Big Ten conference last season. Schroeder won four meets during the season and set four meet records. She was considered to be among the favorites for the National Champion- ships until late in the season. Suffering from injuries to her knee and back, she struggled to a sixth- place finish in the conference meet, and placed far behind the leaders in the district meet. The team managed a third-place finish in the district as freshman Ava Udvadia, usually fifth or sixth on the team, was seventeenth overall in the race. The team narrowly missed go- ing to the national race, as Kansas State received an at-large bid just ahead of the Wolverines. As well as losing Schroeder to in- jury, number-two runner Melissa Thompson was lost for the season with a stress fracture which occurred just before the conference meet.

four Big Ten titles in his twelve seasons. " But we have to turn this situation and use it to our advantage. Because of the injuries, we ' ve had the opportunity to see what some of our younger runners can do, and in the process, have found out that we have a talented and deep team. " One of those talented youngsters is John Scherer. In his first year of col- lege competition last season, he con- sistently was the number-two runner for Michigan. He was 1 6th in the Big Ten meet and 23rd at the district championships narrowly missing a berth in the national meet. Chris Brewster, running with junior eligibility, did go to the Na- tional Championships in Marquette, Wisconsin. He placed 16th in the country and was named All-America. He was third in the Big Ten and won both the Notre Dame Invita- tional and the Michigan Inter- collegiate Meet. Freshman Erik Koskinen, sophmore Rollie Hudson and junior John Chambers rounded out the usual team placers. " We have everybody back for next season, " said assistant coach Mike Shea. " Newingham and Fraleigh are back, and we ' ll have good recruits. We ' ll be right back in there for the Big Ten race. " JIM GINDIN Men ' s C R O !

ca from last season, ran in just two meets and was never at full strength. " I still thought we could run well, " said coach Sue Parks. " Some of the young runners came on well. " The best race of the year for the Wolverines was the Western Ontario Invitational. Michigan won by one point over Penn State, which later placed tenth in the national meet. The Wolverines were third in the 23-team Indiana Invitational, and third in the conference meet held in November in Ann Arbor, to Wiscon- sin and Northwestern. Wisconsin went on to win the national cham- pionship and become the first school ever to win both the men ' s and women ' s NCAA titles. With a strong core of runners re- turning (only Schroeder, McDonald and Schmidt graduated), Parks thinks the team could challenge the better squads in the conference this coming season. " Things look pretty good, " she said. " We ' ve got a solid group com- ing back. We need a couple of front runners to replace Sue, though no one person could replace Sue. " JIM GINDIN Sue Schroeder readies to overtake a Wisconsin harrier. A Michigan harrier emerges from the pack. SPORTS 105
